It seems a new fighter may enter the Dragon Ball FighterZ ring. Rounding out the six-character FighterZ Pass 2, a new leak suggests Janemba, the demon of pure evil, is the 2D fighter’s latest DLC character.
The leak comes via Nintendo UK, who posted a description of the character. That page has since been removed, but Google crawled the page and confirms that Janemba was mentioned on Nintendo’s website. According to the description, Janemba “joins the fight from the Underworld,” and the content is said to include “Janemba as a new playable character, five alternative colors for his outfit, a Janemba Lobby Avatar, and a Janemba Z Stamp.” Though the Nintendo UK link leads to a blank screen, GameSpot sister site Comic Book gathered reaction tweets to the leak, one containing a picture of the description from the Nintendo UK page.

Developer Arc System Works and publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment have not confirmed the leak.
Janemba, a demon regarded as the living definition of evil, was first introduced in 1995’s Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn. The same movie, which saw Janemba as the main atagonist, saw the introduction of the Goku-Vegeta fusion Gogeta.
Dragon Ball FighterZ’s FighterZ Pass 2, which retails for $25 USD / $36 AUD / £20 GBP, contains Jiren, Videl, and GT Goku. All three characters are unlockable now via the pass or can be purchased individually for $5 USD / $7 AUD / £4 GBP. The end of the FighterZ Pass 2 announcement trailer, above, reveals Super Saiyan Blue Gogeta and Broly (from Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which may have a sequel in the works) as the final two characters. These two are expected to release at a later date.
